Buttock Augmentation Procedure
It is a fairly safe procedure if performed by a board-certified expert plastic surgeon. The surgery is completed in a couple of hours, and the steps involved are as below:
- At first, local anesthesia is administered in the fat donor area from where the fat grafts will be harvested.
- The excess fat is collected through a liposuction technique that involves use of a thin cannula that dislodges the fat. This fat is then suctioned out through a surgical syringe connected to the cannula.
- The collected blood, tissues and fat are then processed to form fat grafts.
- These fat grafts are injected into the buttocks using small injections to give it the desired appearance.
Buttock Augmentation Recovery
The recovery process can be different for every patient depending on the treatment plan and their body’s immune system, and lifestyle.
- You will experience discomfort and pain for the few days after the surgery.
- You will experience side effects like bruising and swelling which will subside within two weeks.
- You will be asked to stay in bed for a whole day after the surgery. You can move your hands and feet for blood circulation.
